Just Love Mutianyu Great Wall

To our surprise, we explored Mutianyu Great Wall saving so much. There is no shopping stop in the whole journey. Really glad we saved a lot of money and time!

Mutianyu Great Wall

For so many years, I contributed myself in the work, really tired and boring. Under the suggestion of my friend, I booked this tour. Company service is very considerate that I was arranged well. On the second day, I got up early and waited for the tour guide. After breakfast, I came out of the hotel and saw the bus and tour guide. Getting on the bus, I saw many tourists who gave me warm greeting. On the whole journey, we chatted with each other with fluent English from Chinese history to Chinese culture. This bus is full of laughing.

Once arrived at the destination, we were ordered to getting off in order. Wow, so charming and fresh! The whole area is covered by large scale green trees, very breathtaking! Although it the early autumn, I can feel the local hot temperature, perhaps because of the long journey. For the luxuriant trees and forests, the magnificent Great Wall appeared little. After sharing some tips, we started our hiking journey. We helped each other, passing through the beginning wooden steps. The environment in the foot is very tranquil. We just felt we have been mixing into the forests world. About twenty minutes walking, we came to the Great Wall ground. So long and clean, hard and best preserved! Walking on the Great Wall, I suddenly arouse the ideas that I finally came to the word wonder. Everything here seemed to be doing their best to bring me back to the ancient times.

What I liked best is the beacon towers and the construction of these watchtowers. It is really hard to imagine how the ancient laborers carry these heavy bricks on the wall under the poor condition. Sitting on the ground, lying on the wall, I was stuck in the imagination. Sometimes, few birds flying away told us their happy feeling singing. When we were to arrive at the top, a mark writing the danger warning us! It is really dangerous passing through the steep steps.

Standing on the top enjoying the birds view, it is really a terrific enjoyment!

Up-close and Personal with Great Wall

This summer I got a short stay in Beijing on my business trip over there. Luckily, I got one day break to myself, so I decided to make the most of it with some sightseeing to Badaling.

Badalling Great Wall

My tour guide picked me up from the hotel and we hopped on a car and hit the road to Badaling. It was a fun ride over there and I talked a lot about Great Wall with my tour guide! We arrived at the foot of the hill after about an hour of drive. After getting the entrance tickets, took a cable car up the wall. After landing on the solid paths, safe and sound, we started hiking along. The Badaling section of the Great Wall is well restored so it was kind of easy to hike up and down the wall. It was a sunny day and after about an hour of trekking on the wall, we were both soaked up in sweat, so we had to take some rest by some watch towers from time to time. However, it was all worth it because I got a chance to see and touch the Great Wall up-close and personal! Moreover, the views I saw on the wall really took my breath away! There were times when we were hiking through some sections on the wall I kind of felt dizzy and all, but it was just the height I guess!

Badalling Great Wall

While hiking along the Great Wall, I could not help but wonder how long did it take to build this engineering feat. So I asked my tour guide and she told me some history about how the Great Wall was constructed in the first place. After the information she gave me, I started to get a new perspective towards the Great Wall. I started to realize why the Chinese people were so proud of the Great Wall and even hail it as the embodiment of the nation. It was really fun and amazing to enjoy the hiking on the wall and fresh air! I just loved every minute of it! Anyway, we had to get off the wall and I felt like that I did not see enough of the wall, but I just had to call it a day!

Overall, it was an amazing trip and I had so much fun!

Amazing Half-day Hiking to Badaling Great Wall

This is my first visit to Beijing! I have long wanted to travel to China but it never worked out, so this time I really made it to Beijing – the capital city of China. You have no idea how excited I was when I saw the city for the first time! I could not believe my own eyes – what an amazing city it is! After settling down in my hotel and having a great dinner, I joined a half day tour to Badaling with our tour guide Chen. It was really fun and a blood-pumping experience while we were hiking all the way up the Great Wall! Never did something like that before, felt like I was going to faint from time to time. The trekking on the wall was much of a challenge for me, after an hour of hiking, I got tired and all, but I got to say, it was all worth it! I really had a wonderful time and a lot of fun with my fellow travelers!

Badaling Great Wall

We were told to set out early just to beat the crazy crowds and it took us about an hour to get to the foot of the hill where the Great Wall is built upon. Looking from afar, the snaking wall meanders along the rugged ranges – really marvelous and spectacular! And it was even more amazing when I stood on the wall myself and looked around at the sweeping view of the surroundings extending as far as my eyes could see! We were all competing with each other, busy with finding great spots to snap amazing photos and enjoying the breathtaking views and the like. More amazing was that Chen kept filling us with the interesting history and legend about the Great Wall. It was really fun and exciting while listening to him to show us the behind-story about the engineering feat!

Along the way we took some rest by the watch towers and talked with each other. It was kind of surprising to find out that some of the fellows came from USA too. We kind of hit it off immediately, talking about our visit to China and sharing our stories with each other! Time went by! It was time for us to get down the wall before we knew it! We all did not want to leave so soon, but it was time, so we got down the wall riding a toboggan – it was really a fun ride! We all had a fantastic time with this hiking to Badaling! Loved it!
